A couple of days ago I was talking with one of my colleagues and he was complaining about some teenagers on his block, who apparently are really rude. They were smoking inside the building, in the common area, which is forbidden, and were moking of the people who was passing by (my colleague was one of those people). At some point he expressed that he truly believed that people like that wouldn't change and they were some kind of social scourge. At that point, and even though I admit that sometimes I think that exactly about some people, I thought: "are they so? Is it their fault?"

The root of the problem is the education system and the enviroment we (we, as a society) force them to live in. I think it has to do with the class system, and our goal shouldn't be get rid of them but educate them. I know it's hard as hell, and it poses a hard question: is there an age in which people is actually ineducable? I mean, are we actually capable of teaching kids of whatever age to be good citizens? When they turn 20yo they stop being "manipulable"? What could we do, as a society, to solve the problem of that kind of people?

I work in the HR department and I try to apply my own beliefs to my job, meaning that I try to contemplate every aspect of personal life and dignity of every employee, because I think that sometimes those kids are raised in a lonely enviroment because the work circumstances of their parents are terrible. Maybe more free time and less work could be one of the keys of a better education? What do you think about this?
